    Saved Time and Money

    With permission from my doctor, (and after proper instruction),I gave myself weekly allergy injections for six years.  For about a year, I had to take two shots per week.  If I had insurance or could afford the serum, I would still be taking them.

    Weekly B-12 And B-complex Injections
